    List seems fair to me, except Id put Hunter at the top and probably swap Hinds and Ashcraft. That said Im
    probably the high guy on Hinds and dont object to him being that high. Callihan is a notable omission but I wouldnt argue with someone ranking him 11th behind these ten names.
    Go BLUE!!!

    Callihan ranks 16th.

    They don't scout on just stats. With that said, that is higher than I would have guessed him at.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Nice to see Elly De La Cruz make the list. Certainly turning some eyes this season.

    That could probably be said about a LOT of prospects on top ten lists. But Hinds is one of those guys who seems to end up on the injured list pretty often. Not sure I would rate him in the top ten simply based on a couple batting practice home runs.

    He certainly needs to take a big step forward next year in order to stay relevant. But he was a top 30 prospect coming out of high school on most lists heading into the 2019 draft, and the potential is still there. If he was in college right now he wouldn’t even be draft eligible yet, but if he were he’d likely be a top 50 pick in this years draft. I think of him as an Aquino type with the versatility to play 3B. Aquino has proven himself to be a useful major league player. Another comp going back several years could be a right handed hitting Juan Francisco.

    Of course the upside case could be Edwin Encarnacion.

    All I need to know about BA is that they put Hunter Greene third among Red prospects.

    That's how my top-4 would look, too.

    ESPN's Kiley McDaniel came out with his midseason top prospects list today and there is a picture of Hunter on the story so I assume he made a move on the list. I don't have ESPN+ though so I don't know where he is on the list.
